I can't remember the exact names of the GM products that wer recalled for ABS brake malfunctions, google the make,name, and year of your car with the phrase recalls..you'll get several lists that will tell you if your vehicle was recalled or a service bulleting was issued for that problem.

Hope this helps

Abs light stays on and brake light on 98 durango


The regular brake warning light is for the parking brake being applied or the brake fluid is low. You would need to get the abs system scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

2000 Chevy K3500 No Breaks. Bled breaks, not losing fluid, ABS and break lights on. Hydraulic booster system. makes hissing sound when breaks applied???


I think I would get the body computer scanned for trouble codes and find out why the ABS warning light is on first.
The hissing noise usually means the booster is leaking vac but if the booster was faulty the brake pedal would be hard to push.

For a couple of weeks on my 2000 chevy blazer the breaks were acting funny. Whenever I would come to a stop they would grind a lttle but not all the time. When I would park in a space it would do it to but...


First thing with brakes is to check the lining thickness. You can usually see the fronts through the wheel, or look underneath. If you have drum brakes in the back there may be a rubber inspection plug.

But if linings are ok, another risk is wheel bearings. You would then feel it as a vibration in pedal, and through steering wheel if a front bearing.

With the light, have the ABS code read with a ODBCII module. Autozone can do this for free.

Why is my Lexus SUV ABS system noisy?


abs modules work very hard on any car. it controls the braking, handling and control of the vehicle. usually this is an early warning sign off the abs module packing up. take care.

Left front brake locking up. whats wrong with the abs system?


Sounds more like a caliper problem then an abs problem. ABS systems dont lock up your wheels it prevents them from locking up when you apply to much pressure on the brake.

I am having trouble with the abs braking system on a 1998 chevy blazer. The yellow brake light is usually off for the first few minutes of driving and then comes on and stays on until the car is turned...


the yellow light is warning you that a problem exsists with the abs. unless you are experienced with brakes and abs would highly suggest you take it to a shop.
